About Fogo, Cape Verde

Located in the south west of the archipelago and famed for its dramatic and picturesque volcanic scenes, Fogo is a true highlight of any holiday to Cape Verde. Thousands of years ago, Fogo rose from the sea in a volcanic eruption; a fitting introduction to an island that is renowned for its fiery activity, with its striking volcano, Pico do Fogo, standing at 2,829m and dominating the island’s landscape. Plus, since 1785, many smaller eruptions have taken place inside the crater, which now stretches a massive 7km wide and 10km long.

Beyond the volcano, you’ll find plenty more to tempt a visit to Fogo, from its tasty local coffee and iconic wine, to its pretty Portuguese squares and fantastic trekking opportunities.
